A man who hired ghost hunters and psychics to help him solve the mystery of his long lost father has found his skeleton buried in the basement.
Mike Carroll, 57, always wondered what happened to his father, George Carroll, after he went to buy a pack of cigarettes in 1961 and never came back.
Ghost hunters and psychics were hired to help him solve the mystery and said they felt an "energy" that was coming from the basement.
On Halloween the skeleton was found by Mike and his two sons in the basement of his home in Long Island, New York.
Officials confirmed that the intact skeleton belonged to the family patriarch on Wednesday.
He said: "I’m glad this over and I don’t have to break up my house anymore.
"When we found what we found I was amazed that it was exactly what I thought it was going to be there."
George’s body was discovered under concrete that is believed to have been poured over him.
Mike, who was just eight-months old when his father went missing, was also told by the psychic how his father died.
He told the New York Post: "I was told by the psychic it was blunt force trauma
"She actually said to me that it was a pipe, that he got hit in the head by a pipe and he was buried alive."
Investigators ruled last month that the body’s skull had been cracked open by "blunt force trauma."
Despite finding the bones of the Korean War veteran, local police say it is unlikely that they will know who killed George and buried his body.
Mike’s mum, Dorothy, was said to have given minimal information about her husband’s disappearance and never filed a missing persons report.
Dorothy died in 1998 so cannot be called for questioning.
Another person who could shed light on the case is Richard Darress, Dorothy’s second husband, who moved in shortly after George died.
However local media reported he passed away in June this year.
But for Mike, finding his father’s remains is enough closure.
He said: "There will be no justice. The justice happened when we dug him up because we just interrupted the perfect crime – they almost got away with this."
